Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the artist was attracted to nature, colors, and paintings since her early childhood; and she began painting very early on in her career. Moving to Damascus when she was 16 years old, she was charmed by the traditional oriental Damascene houses with their fountains and tiles; which added to her cultural baggage as a melting pot from Latin and oriental backgrounds.

Settling in Beirut soon after, she refined her craft and started exploring new techniques and methods. Over the years, the artist accumulated a number of paintings in different painting techniques as well as in different themes and inspirations.

Her art is influenced by several worldwide and Lebanese painters, mostly Dali, Van Gogh, Wajih Nahleh, and Haydar Hamawi.
